Can you identify a pattern by touch? Give it a try with our Pattern Circles. Set 1 includes 3 different designs. Two of each pattern enables pattern matching. Younger children can match visually, whereas older children will appreciate the challenge of matching tactually.
Traditional tactile Montessori Materials focus on textural matching through the Rough & Smooth Boards and Fabric Boxes. Yet, tactile pattern recognition, the next logical step in tactile development (and the one used by all those who read Braille), is absent from traditional Montessori materials.
Hence, we designed our Pattern Circles to specifically cultivate tactile pattern recognition. Each Pattern Circle has a pattern carved into it, so the pattern can be felt as well as seen.
